The flavour combination here is amazing. The beef with the capsicum and onion, with the avocado and sour cream and pico de gallo and fresh coriander, it not only looks delicious, it is delicious.
I tend to serve things on the table individually and everyone just makes their own with the flavours that they like.
Make sure to take the steaks out of the refrigerator one hour before you need to cook them, it just makes cooking them better if they are not fridge cold.
This is a great midweek meal idea that we love and I know you will to.
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
3 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
800g rump steak
2½ tablespoons canola oil, divided
2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 large red onion, cut into wedges
Pico de gallo:
2 vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
1/2 small white onion, diced
1/4 cup coarsely chopped coriander
Juice of 1 lime
1 jalapeño chillies, finely chopped
1 avocado, sliced or mashed, to serve
sour cream, to serve
flour or corn tortillas, to serve
fresh coriander leaves, to serve
Make the pico de gallo: combine all ingredients in a bowl and set aside for flavours to develop.
In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Season steak with chili powder mixture.
Heat a griddle, or cast iron or heavy based non stick frying pan over high heat until hot.
Brush steak with 1 tablespoon canola oil. Place the steak on the hot griddle (or in the hot pan) and cook for 2 minutes on each side (this does depend on the thickness of your steak). Let rest 5 minutes.
Add bell peppers and onion to grill, add remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 6-8 minutes.
Thinly slice steak against the grain and serve with bell peppers and onion, tortillas, pico de gallo, avocado, sour cream and fresh coriander leaves.
